After leaving Texas, I headed to New Orleans, Louisiana. I didn’t hold a car meeting up there for the simple reason that I wanted to have some kind of vacation/cultural stop during this trip. As many of you know, I am from Canada, more precisely Quebec. Quebec is the only French-speaking place in the whole of North America. Louisiana is an old French colony and I just wanted to see what it looked like. So this post will be a bit less “car related” than the others.
Fleur-de-lys flag, which is also shown on Quebec’s National Flag.
It’s quite cool to see signs in both languages on a single pole. For your information, “rue” means “street”. And for those who know New Orleans, Bourbon Street is where the magic happens.
I had never heard of this place except for the huge flooding that happened about 10 years ago (Hurricane Katrina). After some research, I discovered that it’s pretty much USA’s city of vice. This becomes obvious pretty quickly with a look at the signs…
Still, it was a beautiful place to visit during this very long road trip!
More fleur-de-lys here and there.
Alright, so that was the culture/history part of the blog. REV9’s more about cars, right? I didn’t drive the car during my two-day stay because it was securely parked indoors and I didn’t want the drunk people walking in the street to pour beer on it… haha. When I left, I decided to do a photo shoot in front of a cool background I found.
This photo style is called the “Dilly Shot”.
This is one of my favorite picture angles. It shows the beautiful shape of the fenders as well as the concavity of the Advan RZ 17x8 Wheels.
And a last one, just because I don’t take a lot of pictures from this angle…
Here are a few pictures I took while driving towards Atlanta, GA, for our next meeting.
Finally, I took this video as we were driving away from New Orleans. It was sunny right before a rain storm and that was just awesome to watch. That’s something you don’t see when you take a plane.
